    So here's the moment I have to take back. As a non-smoker I'm wrong here. But I try to stay neutral. He really deserves that. A real Bruichladdich!

      Very clear and unmistakable "the Bruichladdich". Without ifs and buts all the main words that make it up. Intense notes during a barbecue right on the beach near the distillery. Well done. Respect. Only the PLV does not suit me at all. But it was clear, sorry :(

      For me too little body but everything with lemongrass and peat and sweet malt wonderfully balanced. Smoke with peppery notes. Actually solid. Just too thin.

      Medium to longer but only by the salty peat notes with longer smoke behind the spicy note, he can last longer. For the price almost too short.

    • Nose
      Heavy peaty sweetness. In the background notes of salt, rose soap and juniper. In addition, oak, citrus zests, apple crates and vanilla.
    • Taste
      Soft and medium heavy, with tender-salty peat, smoked malt and nutty notes. Will be a little soapy and dry.
    • Finish
      Medium length, salted nuts, malt and peat smoke.

    Nice peaty meaty islay dram. Next to the meat there is a fair amount of pear and vanilla to discover

    This malt, according to Jim McEwan's statement, is a blend of Bruichladdichs, Port Charlottes, and Octomores. The Octomore is for me - clearly recognizable by the myrtle and fern note. An untamed malt. Certainly interesting, although the plastic taste is a bit scary to me to be an all-day dram.
    • Nose
      Significantly dry peat smoke at the beginning of the nose. Amazingly fast then joins a very nice sweet vanilla note. The alcohol is well integrated and has a refreshing effect on the nose (menthol). Then it becomes floral (myrtle and fern) and behind it a little bit the wood.
    • Taste
      Cold ash that has been extinguished with freshly squeezed lemon juice. A little vanilla, but not nearly as sweet as the nose suggests. Young and strong on the tongue. He is still very young ... in the middle of the Sturm und Drang Zeit. Then follows a distinct bitterness. Slightly metallic and a clear plastic note. With white pepper.
    • Finish
      A long finish. Dry smoke, vanilla and spices remain in the mouth. The bitterness is still there.

    Nosing: Soft, delicate smoke, sweetish, slightly fruity

    Tasting: peat, some charcoal

    With water: a bit more fruity

    Comment: Overall, one-dimensional

    Have had some good Bruichladdich, but this one ends up very bitter and rather unbalanced.
